    A U.S. congressman from Florida was caught last week digging his finger in his ear and then eating whatever it was he found. Representative Joe Garcia was at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on government surveillance, but it was his own reconnaissance mission that C-SPAN footage has now revealed. It was a live shot, in fact, and the Key West congressman had the poor timing to undertake his treasure hunt while sitting directly behind his colleague as she took the floor. Before the cameras have left him, the first term Democrat even looks at his fingers before putting them back...

    Two twin sister pensioners have decided to retire as prostitutes after half a century in the sex trade, having slept with 355,000 men between them. Louise and Martine Fokkens, both 70, say they are finding it a painful struggle to go on working in Amsterdams notorious red light zone. They claim to be the oldest prostitutes in the Dutch city and last year starred in a documentary film named Meet The Fokkens. Mother-of-four Louise admitted, though, that her arthritis means some positions are now too painful while mother-of-three Martine complained about a drop in custom. Only one elderly man...

    ....Some day, twenty years or so form now, youre going to just accept as similar fact that actor Kal Penn and President Obama had a romantic relationship that began on the 2008 campaign trail and continued when Obama asked Penn to move to Washington so they could be close to one another and the two could have sex more frequently.

    The buycott of Chick-fil-A on Wednesday produced what the company will only describe as an unprecedented day for business. Today, we get the the form of a kiss-in by gay couples angry about remarks made by company president Dan Cathy. Will it be as successful? Boycotts have a revered place in American history as an effective form of protest, in large part because of the role they played in the civil rights movement. Lately, however, the tactics record is much more spotty. Looking at one list of current boycotts, I dont see many, if any, that Id count as...

    One day after having the best sales day in its history, Chick-fil-A will have to prepare itself for a counter-protest to yesterday's "appreciation day" by those outraged over threats made by mayors and city council members in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York (Mayor Michael Bloomberg did not join his colleagues in the other cities). Supporters of same-sex marriage will stage "kiss-ins" at Chick-fil-A locations tomorrow, if a Facebook-organized protest succeeds: Yesterday’s banner turnout at Chick-fil-A restaurants for free speech rights — with thousands of people nationwide and hundreds in the Bay State’s two locations lining up to buy...

    Daniel Angerer is used to getting attention for the food served at his restaurant, Klee Brasserie but the New York chef is making more headlines than ever over a new dish that has its source in his fiancee's brassiere. "Mommy's Milk Cheese" is exactly what it sounds like: cheese made from the breast milk of a nursing mother. In Angerer's case, that mother is his longtime fiancee, Lori Mason, who was producing more milk than she knew what to do with while nursing their now 10-week-old daughter, Arabella. "We see this supply in the freezer and basically can't stuff...

    Infecting patients with worms 'could hold key to treating asthma' Infecting patients with worms could hold the key to treating asthma and other conditions on the rise because of the modern obsession with cleanliness, scientists believe. By Kate Devlin 28 Jan 2009 Researchers are testing whether parasitic worms can stimulate patients' immune systems to fight illnesses. The worms have been all but eliminated from humans in developed countries, because of an increased emphasis on hygiene. But experts believe their absence could be one of the reasons why some illnesses, including asthma and diabetes, are increasingly prevalent. A trial by scientists...
